Interesting strategy to pass the chakra on and make a lot of powerful beings rather than on uber powerful. That's probably the first step away from the Godzilla scenario. Will wait to see where this goes. Went for a long look back at the father's/children angle of Shikamaur/Ino/Choji. Nice that it isn't forgotten but a long time coming that it's hard to fall back into the sentimentality. I mean, you'd think ninja families would prepare each other for the potential of death and after Azuma they'd be a bit tougher about it rather than falling to tears again.
Cry with the battle is over.
Anyway, Naruto will remember his friends as they die. How nice. Let's get this fight over with and figure out who's REALLY behind it all. Figuring Sasuke and co. are off to the Uchiha quarter for info.
The Asuma death would be easier than losing a parent, or a life long friends parent as well, tears are warranted IMHO.

Also they would have noticed the sinister chakra of the Juubi earlier on. Esp since it is on it's second stage. Anyhoo brother man your point I still agree with.
I get you, and to me its more of a Kishi fuck up, if he had shown a reaction from that group earlier during th Jyuubi Transformation, or even his Nuke Session, and then this now, it would be better to differentiate IMHO.

"Why, Mr. Kyf? Why do you do it? Why get up? Why keep fighting? Do you believe you're fighting FOR something? For more than your Characters survival? Can you tell me what IT is? Do you even know? Is IT freedom? Or truth? Perhaps peace? Yes? No? Could it be for love? Illusions, Mr. Kyf. Vagaries of perception. The temporary constructs of a feeble human intellect trying desperately to justify a shinobi that is without meaning or purpose. And all of them as artificial as the Matrix itself, although only a human mind could invent something as insipid as love. You must be able to see it, Mr. Kyf. You must know it by now. You can't win. It's pointless to keep fighting. Why, Mr. Kyf? Why? Why do you persist?"
